First the simple stuff: Tim Tebow went 21-40 on Sunday, lifting his career completion rate to 48.9%.  My thoughts on Denver’s latest ridiculous comeback win are exactly (everything I wrote last week) x 10.  I can’t wait to see what happens when they play New England this week.

Ok, now here’s the controversial part: I think the fact that Tim Tebow and the Broncos continue to win games they shouldn’t is potentially harmful to humanity.  Tebow is an Evangelical Christian who is not hesitant to share his beliefs, to the point that he ran a pro-life TV commercial during the Superbowl last year.  My take on religion is that everyone has the right to believe whatever they want, but it’s dangerous and closed-minded to try to impose what you think on others.  To some people with similar beliefs as his own, Tebow’s irrational success at winning football games enforces the notion that they are right and everyone else is wrong.  Isn’t the world a better place when people are open minded and accepting of the differences of others?  But the appearance to some that the Denver Broncos victories may be aided by Tebow’s religion encourages the faith of many who think otherwise.

If you adamantly disagree with what I am saying, before you freak out take a step back, reread the line in italics, and try to see the situation from a different point of view.  And also keep in mind that this is just one of many whimsical, antagonistic, lighthearted, and hopefully amusing ideas that cross my mind and make it onto my blog.
